Hobson's ChoiceCobbler Henry Horatio Hobson has three daughters, all of whom he takes for granted, forcing them to work in his shop unpaid. When the oldest and plainest, Maggie, takes the initiative of marrying his best bootmaker, Willie Mossop, and setting up a rival business, Hobson gets his comeuppance, and the girls get their own back. Set in 1880s Salford, Harold Brighouse's play Hobson's Choice is directed for the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre by Nadia Fall.
